i'll be bottling my second brew (a PM wit) later today, and i'm trying to decide what recipe to do next. being new to this, i don't have enough knowledge to look at a recipe and know whether i'd like it, or even be able to accomplish it.

so i was wondering if any of you all might have some suggestions for me.

here's the criteria:

- i'd like to do a simple partial mash recipe with ingredients that can be easily sourced.

- for this batch i'd like to try an american ale, maybe amber, or a golden ale of some kind.

- not too hoppy.



so what do you all think would be a good beer for me to try?

thanks!

im brewing a midwest supplies autumn amber ale... I think it fits your criteria.. I too am a new brewer (this being my second batch) I followed the directions and it was pretty straight forward. My first batch was their 20 minute irish stout which was delicious! The amber ale is in my secondary, I auto siphoned it Friday night after a long night of drinking at a wedding (open bar)... 3 weeks I will be kegging it and I will let you know how it turns out! Cheers

A nice Cream ale in this summer heat would be a great choice or a Blond ale too.

If you look in the recipe database, you could do just about any of those recipes. Even the ones that are AG are easily converted to partial mash.

I really like amber ales, but I don't know of any "golden" ales. If you like Rogue's Dead Guy, my clone is pretty close and it's very easy and all the ingredients are readily available.

Here is Jamil's Amber in a PM. I've never brewed it. It's for six gallons.

Mash,
1 lb Munich
1 lb Victory
1 lb Crystal 40L
8 oz Crystal 120L
4 oz Pale Chocolate Malt 200L
6 lb Pale LME added at 15 minutes
.5 oz Magnum 15AA 60 minutes
.5 Cascade 10 minutes
.5 Centennial 10 minutes
.5 Cascade 0 minutes
.5 Centennial 0 minutes
US-05

It will probably be about 36 IBU with the late extract addition and a three gallon boil.

I really like EdWorts Haus ale, there is a PM version in the thread I do believe, simple and tasty, I tweaked the recipe a fair bit over time, but it is a great starting point for a pale ale.

I'll throw another idea out there: Yooper's California Common isn't exactly what you asked for, but it's delicious and is in about the sort of flavor profile you're looking for.
